REVIEWS
  • The breathtaking beauty of the Emelisse Art Hotel was something else altogether.


    Dishes such as Thai-inspired tom yum laksa with gluten-free soba noodles, locally caught seabass with slow-roasted garlic, and organic chia-seed-açaí-and-coconut pudding are delicious. There are green juices and healthy snacks to ward off hunger. Funny and upbeat, Wichert runs healthy cooking classes - learn the benefits of steam frying and how to make sushi. There's plenty of laughter in the mix, too: a group quiz in the evening by a roaring fire; a (healthy) pizza night; a boat trip to Ithaca on Tsimaras's swish boat. What makes this recipe for fitness so great, though, is the team's good humour. You'll want to bottle up their witticisms and take them home.


    Would you pay for another retreat from this provider, or opt for a different company instead? Why?

    Will definitely pay for another trip - my gift to myself is to go here at least once a year Why? Because it is the most recharging place I know.
